Old Head of Kinsale Celebrates 25 years

Still hard to believe what owners Pat and John O Connor (RIP) achieved 25 years ago in creating the marvel that is the Old Head Golf Links.
For sale for good grazing on the exposed tip of the headland where the first settlers came from Europe, the Eirinn Clan in 1000BC. The aerial photo taken from the Space station by our good friend the astronaut Dan Tani (who coincidentally married Cork woman Jane Egan after meeting her on a playing visit to the course) and the pre course shot of the headland highlight the challenges the existed pre course design. The transition to one of the most sought after golf courses in Ireland and the world is a testament to the owner’s foresight and designers Ron Kirby, Paddy Merrigan, Liam Higgins, Eddie Hackett and Joe Carr.
